Would any Arsenal players get into the Tottenham team? 0

Posted on April 28, 2017 by David Nugent

This weekend is, of course, the north London derby, as Arsenal visit north London rivals Tottenham in a massive Premier League clash.

As always there has been combined teams and talk of who would get into whose team. However, Sky Sports pundit and former Arsenal star Paul Merson reckons the only Arsenal player who would get into the Tottenham team is forward Alexis Sanchez.

In all honesty, it is hard to agree with Merse on this one. He can be an idiot at times, but I think he is pretty accurate in his assessment of this: Sanchez is probably the only Gunners player who would get in the Spurs team.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has shed clear light on the frustrating situation around the Alexis Sanchez’s contract conundrum, which has left many Gunners supporters fearing the Chilean star could force his way out of the Emirates club at the end of the season.

It is a familiar fear for Arsenal supporters who have experienced it all once before.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger recently spoke out about his failure to sign Jamie Vardy in the summer, but the opinion from supporters is one of relief that the Leicester City man wasn’t brought to the Emirates Stadium given his skill set.

“Some transfers are successful and some are not and you have to accept the decision of the player involved. You move forward and onto other things. I don’t think we could have done anything more (in the summer transfer window). We did what we wanted to do,” said Wenger.

Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle, agent of Lucas Perez, claims the Arsenal man hasn’t spoken to any club about a summer exit and is instead focused on seeing out the season with the Gunners. Perez, signed from Deportivo La Coruna last summer, has been linked with a return to the Estadio Riazor after a disappointing debut campaign at the Emirates Stadium, but Lovelle has refuted such claims.

Was it wise to give Mertesacker an extended deal? 1

Posted on April 25, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal awarded defender Per Mertesacker an 18-month deal back in January, despite the former German international having spent the season with a knee injury. The centre-back has been on the bench after recovering from his injury, albeit an unused substitute in three of Arsenal’s last five Premier League games, but should the Arsenal club captain have been given a new deal?

Arsenal right-back Carl Jenkinson has been reduced to making appearances for the reserve side in the Premier League 2 this season, featuring more times for the U23s (6 appearance) than he has for the first-team (5 appearances in all competitions).

Manager Arsene Wenger froze out the former Charlton Athletic man after Jenkinson failed to agree personal terms with Crystal Palace when the Eagles tried to sign him this season, and he’s expected to be up for sale this summer or released at the end of his deal in 2018 otherwise.

Could Iwobi feature if Wenger rotates squad for Leicester clash? 0

Posted on April 25, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has hardly played for the Gunners in recent weeks, amassing a paltry 25 minutes of Premier League football in the last eight weeks, but could feature against Leicester City on Wednesday should manager Arsene Wenger rotate his squad after Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final victory.

The Londoners will have tired players after going to extra time at Wembley on the weekend, and their attacking players could be given a rest to stave off any signs of fatigue as a result. Iwobi was impressing in the first-half of the season but has been used sparingly in 2017. Despite his period of inactivity, he’s remained on the bench but could be deployed to keep the side fresh.
